tshepiso jeme

He is a very passionate, hard-working, multi-talented, versatile and ambitious creative. Tshepiso considers himself a storyteller and he believes that the art of storytelling is far bigger than the domain of entertainment, it is about bare truth and reflection of society that brings forth sanity, healing, identity and meaning of humanity. He believes there are certain people called for it. It is a calling for him and he knows that it is something he wants to do for the rest of his life. He is responding to his purpose of living. He always knew that all he wanted to do was tell stories and edutain (educate and entertain) people from a young age but was never really exposed to the arts. His call to action was when he was casted in a 2016 high school short film project called Isithembu (Polygamy) where he played a polygamist King and having watched stage plays like The Suit and Othello, that was his turning point because besides excelling in other fields of study, Drama was the only career path he wanted to pursue and that was the only thing his soul yearned for. He is also a voice artist, during his high school career he performed a voice over for SANRAL in 2015. In 2017 he enrolled at the University of Witwatersrand to study BA Dramatic Arts and it only in his first that he was involved in many student pieces trying to learn and horn his craft and it is in his first that he made his film debut by scoring a lead role in a Mzansi Magic film called Indlalifa. In the same year, he was casted as the supporting lead in a short film called The Last Kiss. In 2018 he made his major appearance in Theatre performance as he was casted in Festivals and Wits theatre productions like Devil On The Cross and Revelations and got to work alongside credited award nominees and winners. He is currently working in different projects for different festivals that are taking place this year (August 2018) and next year and broadening his horizons by doing modeling, physical theatre and dance projects. He aspires to be a well-round stage and screen actor, voice artist, Presenter, director and writer. When Tshepiso is not performing, he always tries to find different scripts and rehearse because he believe this is a delicate craft that needs time and attention. He enjoys gaining experience on film sets as an intern and background actor. He lives by the well know statement of ‘An Actor prepares’ as he believes that luck is a point whereby opportunity meets preparation. He reads quite a lot and enjoys history and anthropology. He is an active sport participant. He considers himself a polyglot and always yearns for knowledge and comprehension. He has an insatiable appetite for growth and aims to be the best that he can be everyday.
